Soils and Vegetation
The soil in this ecozone determines a lot about the rest of the ecozone. The soil is very harsh and cold, because it is the biggest wetland, and in winter, the soil gets frozen over. Thats alot of land given to freeze. Which means vegetation is to he minimal, but enough. In the north there are treeless tundra. Only in the south and west are there more trees and berry bushes and other sources of food.
Soils,Wetlands and wildlife

Animal wildlife
"There is mostly flat terrain and poor drainage, this is what causes the wetlands, bogs, and swamps in most of Hudson Plains" (https://sites.google.com/site/hudsonplainecozone/landforms ) The Hudson Plains are low-lying and are swampy plains. The area of the Hudson plains is 359 546 km. The Hudson Plains cover a quarter of Ontario's land and 3.6% of Canada.. The land of Hudson Plains is only 120 meters in height, which isn't very tall. The lands practically lives on water

Hudson Plains issues
One issue with Hudson Plains is that animals, such as polar bears,seals and beluga whales are contaminated. To be more general, the ocean is contaminated with poisons such as dieldrin (a toxic insecticide), DDE, and other chlordane products. It impairs endocrine, reproductive, and immune systems. Beluga whales get DDT,( Heavy metal/lead)Chlordane, and toxaphene(amber waxy solid with an odour of chlorine) in their blubber. Mercury was also found within mammal, birds, fish, and even humans near the contaminated area
The Hudson Plains stretch from Manitoba to Quebec
